Angouleme, a character in Wes Anderson's next film
Wes Anderson takes a liking to Angoulême
The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Tenenbaum Family or Aboard the Darjeeling Limited, a list of films by the director to which will soon be added a 50’s musical filmed in the streets of Angoulême.
Wes Anderson came in July 2018 to scout the locations for the filming of his next film and the director said he was amazed by the old cobblestone streets and the topography of the city. It is not only to make it a set, the director said he wants to make Angoulême a character in its own right in his feature film.
The city has already hosted many filming events such as Mammuth, Victoire Bonnot or Père et Maire since 2004. As in this last series, the city of Angoulême will not be mentioned in the film, the plot will take place in an imaginary city.
